I know what you're thinking.....bran muffins are only for old people! Think again. My entire family loves/eats these muffins. They are moist and delicious but not overly sweet. Perfect for breakfast!

I have worked hard to perfect a recipe that I love and this is my 'perfect' bran muffin recipe:

Oat Bran Muffins
1 c. milk
1 1/2 c. oat bran
1/3 c. olive oil
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. agave nectar
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. all-purpose flour (unbleached)
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small mixing bowl combine milk and oat bran. Set aside to soak.

Meanwhile, in another small mixing bowl, combine oil, egg, vanilla, brown sugar, and agave nectar. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl sift together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in wet ingredients and stir to combine. Add in oat bran mixture stirring to incorporate well.

Line a 12 whole muffin tin with liners and fill each evenly - approximately 3/4 full.

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted come out clean.
I have to say that this is the best bran muffin recipe that I have tried!! Thank you so much! I did make a few of my own additions, I substituted coconut oil for olive, loved the slight coconut flavor, added flaxseed meal, 1/4 cup finely ground walnuts and topped with mini dark chocolate chips. They come out just perfect!! A keeper for sure!
I'm glad you love the recipe. Your modifications sound delightful!
hungry now. If it is in front of me, it will be great.
My friend loves this type of muffin! I will have to share this recipe with her!
